The Welfare Reform Act contains the provisions allowing this to be done but as far as I am aware there has not yet been a commencement order for those bits, and in any case detailed Regulations are required. I heard somewhere that it is not planned to introduce this until October 2008. It’s a pity it couldn’t be done to coincide with LHA, but it looks as if an EP will have the effect of migrating the claimant onto LHA in the short term
